Artificial and synthetic diets cause the same kind of health problems in dogs as they do in humans. Around 40% of dogs and humans die from cancer.
Eighty million species on earth thrive on natural raw food. Only humans and the animals we have domesticated and farmed, consume a processed diet filled with unhealthy ingredients, chemicals, and preservatives. Consequently, both humans and our companion animals suffer from many chronic illnesses like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, and other degenerative diseases. The harmful effects of consuming toxins produced by processing, accumulate over the years. Compare that to the 80 years commercially processed food has been around. A small drop in the ocean in the history of the dog and humans.
Additives, preservatives and colourants in processed food, lead to all sorts of health problems. All kibbles are high in carbohydrates, this is causing an epidemic of canine obesity.
Dogs are suffering from conditions such as:
- kidney disease
- skin infections
- sensitive stomachs
- anal gland issues
- premature tooth decay
The list is long. Remember, a grain-heavy, additive-filled diet puts their whole system under pressure. The organs are overworked trying to digest the indigestible. It's no wonder that the immune system becomes severely compromised, and chronic illness ravages your dog's body.
